I double clicked on my recent tab in the home page on photoshop. My file went missing, the i did it to the next one, and the next. All three instantly disappeared. Then i clicked on the next image, and it opened. 

Then when i went looking in my recent projects these files were nowhere to be seen.

These missing images were all duplicates of each other, with slight differences. 

 

I've looked everywhere for them, i cant find my project files anywhere. All i did was double click and the vanished. Please help.

Are you saving files to the internal harddrive? An externa drive? A network volume or server? As a Cloud Document?

What you see on the Home Screen is a preview of Recents. If the actual file no longer exists, it will disappear when clicked. 

 

Some reasons for this include:

  • the files were renamed
  • they were moved to another folder
  • they exist on a drive that is not connected to your computer

 

The file that opened still exists and is in the same location.

You're welcome, @Peter23248569umza , and I'm glad you were able to find them! If moving them back doesn't restore them to Recents, just open them again.

 

The Recent files are displayed in both the Home Screen and in File > Recents, and you can change the number of Recents in Preferences.

 

The OS also maintains a list of Recents. On macOS it's found in the Apple menu. I found this for Windows:
